My Thoughts On Songs That Were Recently Released... Are They Still Good?

So, in the last one of these I did, I said I'd do it again, and I've decided every few weeks maybe a month I'll do these, and I'll tell you if some of the songs I've reviewed recently are still worth the hype that I gave them, any release from the past two weeks will not be included as I haven't had enough time for the feeling of it being a new song to wear off! But here we go, here's part two!

First up we have Benjamin Martin's song River Lonely, now I do still think this is a beautiful song, I still think it's lovely. It hasn't been a song I've reached for a lot, but that's because the past few weeks I've been on a pretty heavy music kick, I'm mainly listening to pop-punk and hardcore currently, however, I still think it's a lovely song, I still think it's good, but at the end of the day, it's a very mood dependent song for me. I would still recommend it though, and I still stand by what I said about it! When it came out, I did have it on repeat for days! 

Ollie Hayes, Ollie released Dealing With A Broken Heart a few weeks ago, and I thought it was amazing! I loved it, I thought it was a great song. I will admit that I may have reached for this song slightly more than River Lonely, but as I said, I've been getting back into the heavier side of my music taste. I would still recommend it, but for me, I just haven't wanted to listen to as much as I did when it first came out, it's all about how long I've known the song for I think, and the older it gets the less I gravitate towards it. 

The Headspace released Evergreen a few weeks ago, and I can say that I've got so much joy out of listening to this song. I've listened to it so many times and I think it's a phenomenal song, I love it, I would still recommend it. I think it's one of the best songs that's come out recently, and since the release of Evergreen, I've found myself reaching for The Headspace's discography a lot! I still think it's an incredible song. 

The Dangerous Summer released a song called Fuck Them All a few weeks ago, and I didn't think much of it back then. I still don't think the most about it, but it has grown on me, and I've actually found myself having it stuck in my head for a while, it's definetly grown on me. It's still not my favourite thing they've put out, but it's grown on me and I think it's pretty good! I'd recommend it more now, than I did back then! 

AVAERA released Grow Up and I was super excited about the post, I was really enthusiastic about it, and I'm still super passionate about it. It's my favourite song that they've put out, I think it's insanely good and I love Blair's vocals on the track still. I would hands down still recommend this song, I think it's insanely good, and I've reached for it so much! I love it, and if you haven't heard it already, then I suggest that you go and give it a listen because it's so good! 

So, that's all I'm going to talk about in this post, in a few weeks I'll do an update on the songs that have come out recently again, and I'll try to make this a monthly thing!

Introducing: My Latest Failure

Okay, so My Latest Failure are a band I've mentioned once, possibly twice, but that's it. However, Chris asked me if I'd be up for reviewing their music, so I thought why the hell not! 

My Latest Failure are a punk band from Middlesex, England (London if you're not geographically smart). They combine sub-genres of punk and metal to "produce hard-hitting verses with catchy sing along choruses which we call hardcore injected punk". They are inspired by hardcore punk and heavily influenced by 90s punk rock, pop-punk and nu-metal. This results in their sound having an interesting balance of aggresion, high energy and melodic noise. 
My Latest Failure are a three-piece consisting of; 

Chris Underhill - Guitar and VocalsAndy Hale - Bass and VocalsJamie Boyle - Drums
Now, let's talk music. I actually put Selfish down in the top 10 of the best single in the quarantine awards, so it's very evident that I love Selfish, however, there are 5 other songs out for you a…

So Light Grey are an Ireland based trio that consists of;

Ciaran - Vocals and Guitar

They're pop-rock/pop-punk and they're insane! Kinda like Waterparks but better, I'd say if you like modern pop-punk you'll probably really like them! I think they're incredible!

But let's be realistic, we're here to talk about if the songs are any good... so let's dive into it. 

For reference, Light Grey has 9 songs out currently which is great! We love that! 

So like I tend to do, I'm going to start with the earliest release and work my up to their latest release. 

They released an EP back in 2018 called Beginne…

So, Until You Disappear are a pop-punk band from Leicester! We love East Midlands bands here, it's literally why I became a music blog, to show off the local scene! They're a four piece that consists of; 

Edd Hartley - Guitars and Vocals
Dan Robinson - Guitar
Chris Walker - Bass
Harrison Evans - Drums

They have two tracks currently out, and now we're going to talk about those track and what I think of them! 

Up first is Drunk Me. 
Drunk Me is a belter of a track! I'm honestly so blown away with this track, when I first heard it I couldn't believe just how much I loved it. This for me is one of those perfect songs. It's my perfect style. Absolutely adore this track! I love the lyrics and I think Edd has a great voice! You can hear …
